Table accident sidelines Branyan

Yesterday the Padres placed Mat Latos on disabled list with a strained left side after he tried to hold a sneeze in, but that wasn't the only bizarre injury of the day.
Mariners first baseman Russell Branyan missed last night's game and will miss today's game after a table fell on Branyan's left foot Thursday morning in his hotel room, cutting and bruising his toe, manager Don Wakamatsu told the Seattle Times ' Larry Stone .
"He went to close the curtains this morning at 5," Wakamatsu said. "He knocked over the table and it landed on his foot."
Meanwhile, Stone also reports Erik Bedard has had a setback in his return from labrum surgery and went to see the doctor who performed the surgery last August.
